Brandi Glanville

Assistant FIRED

After Dognapping

6/11/2013 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brandi Glanville
is blaming the whole stolen dog thing on her assistant -- TMZ has learned, the "Real Housewives" star has FIRED her right-hand woman for not taking better care of the pooch.

The 23-year-old ex-assistant -- who didn't want to be named -- tells TMZ, "I no longer work for Brandi. She texted me [Saturday] saying that I didn’t do my job by losing the dog."

As we reported, Brandi's Encino home was burglarized last Wednesday while she was in Palm Springs -- or so the assistant claims -- and someone made off with her beloved Chihuahua Chica.

After the alleged burglary, Brandi said she did NOT want to blame her assistant -- the last person to be with the dog before it vanished -- but something must have changed ... because the asst. tells us, that's exactly what Brandi did by giving her the chop.

Now the assistant's upset -- telling us she did everything in her power to make sure Chica was safe (double checking the doors, closing all windows, locking everything) and firing her just isn't fair.

Oh yeah, she also says Brandi still owes her for two weeks' work ... more than $1,000.  Chica's still missing.

But Brandi's unmoved -- she believes the assistant made up the burglary story to cover the fact that she lost the dog. Brandi tells us, "I did what I had to do. If I can't trust her with my dogs, how can I trust her with my kids?" As for the unpaid wages ... Brandi says the check's in the mail.

go home!    

She always raved about this assistant on Twitter. If the house was broken into like she said, it's not the assistant's fault really. Plus, she should have had her or someone house sit and not go twice a day to feed and give water to them. Get security cameras Brandi, then you would know what really happened. #justsayin

The assistant should contact the labor board and find out her's not her fault that Brandi's house got burglarized.....she didn't have grounds to fire her...take her to court or collect unemployment!

Pathetic woman who uses her missing dog to get media attention. She could have put up a reward and flyers without all the hoopla.

Replacing the dog after 5 minutes should give u a clue about how tacky and clueless she is. Woud u replace a family member that quickly or is it just an object to her? We all know she seeks attention on twitter like tweeting "I just called 911" randomly so you cant trust anything she does.

All I have to say is...Damn. That face! It's so pumped full of fillers she looks like the puppet from Saw. No wonder her dog fled.

This whole dog incident has erased my like of Brandi. Ugh. Just don't believe her. And I'm tired of her "woe is me" bull**** all the time. Moreover, she was whining up, down and forwards for years that she had "no money!" yet I find out that she can afford to have an assistant? And multiple dogs? I'll never buy one of her books again.

Why didn't she bring the dog to a kennel like normal pet owners do when on vacation?

Somehow I think the kids would be a lot safer and better taken care of if they were with her assistant instead of their poor excuse for a mother.
